How Bungie really felt about Halo Wars

[url=http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-09-27-halo-wars-bungie-saw-it-as-whoring-out-franchise-says-ensemble-founder]"Another problem was that Bungie was never up for it... Bungie was kind of sore about the idea. What they called it was 'the whoring out of our franchise' or something."[/url] Discuss [url=http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-09-26-tony-goodman-the-publisher-as-we-know-it-may-become-extinct]Full interview[/url] [Edited on 09.27.2012 1:58 PM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] spartain ken 15 The thing is though is Bungie has created several successful RTS games in the past. If Bungie was in charge of Halo Wars, it probably would of been a much better game, maybe ever like a Myth clone (which is awesome because Myth is a fun and challenging RTS). [/quote]It seems you're unbeknownst of what Ensemble had done in the past.

  • I'm just waiting for Halo to take a Star Wars turn of fate. Just like George Lucas ruined my image of Darth Vader by showing me his childhood, 343 will probably ruin Halo by going back into John's childhood. I don't want to help the Master Chief fill his diaper...

  • I loved Halo wars. Could never win a match online because the enemy always seemed to pump Grizzlies out faster than I could assemble a supply bad, but good on them!

Yeah... that would definitely suck.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] x Foman123 x Honestly, if anyone sounds bitter, it's the interviewee.[/quote] This whole situation reminds me of Star Wars. Microsoft is Emperor Palpatine, Tony Goodman is Anakin Skywalker, and Bungie is Obi Wan Kenobi. Work with me here, the direction of Goodman's anger has been manipulated into being focused on Bungie instead of Microsoft, the real evil in this tragedy.

  • One of the reasons Bungie was so upset was because when the first saw a screen shot it was something like this: [url]http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080731092608/halo/images/b/b9/1217496363_Halo_Wars_UNSC_vs_Covenant.jpg[/url] It was fairly realistic of how a full scale battle would have been in the Halo Universe. Then it got nerfed to how we know it today. Compare the picture, which was an actual screenshot of the game during early development, versus the finished product.

  • More than hundreds, especially since they put the point cap on. I'm a Brig right now, not sure if I want to put the effort in to go general.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DMX1337 Well... it [i]was[/i] the whoring out of their franchise.[/quote] Well if Bungie hated Halo becoming a simple RTS, they must freakin' [i][b]love[/i][/b] what Halo 4 is turning out to be. That looks more "whored out" than Wars ever was. If Bungie didn't like the idea of Ensemble using their IP, they should've said no.

  • I like Halo Wars to just screw around but I can understand Bungie being a little upset. I can understand Ensemble being a little mad since Microsoft made them put Halo in it. On a side note, Age of Empires II is still my favorite PC game.
